For a long time there has been talk about a fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Erislandy Lara and even more so as they faced off against the same opposition. The latest was Alfredo Angulo.
After Alvarez faced Angulo, Lara made a surprise visit to the podium as Alvarez was taking questions and asked when he would get a chance to fight Alvarez which seemed to irritate the Mexican superstar.
Lara’s tactics may have paid off as recently Canelo Promotions official Facebook page posted photos of Canelo training with the caption “Canelo Alvarez returns to the ring possibly against Erislandy Lara.”
Until contracts are signed and the fighters step into the ring it is all speculation but it is a fight that many will keep their eyes on to see where both fighters are in comparison to where they are viewed/ranked.
